The Republic of Chiho is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its zero percent divorce rate, digital currency, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 362 million Chihoese are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Chukyo. The average income tax rate is 34.0%.

The powerhouse Chihoese economy, worth 35.8 trillion New Chiho Yen a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 98,813 New Chiho Yen, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.1 times as much as the poorest.

The Chukyo Prison Revue puts on a better stage show than anything in the Theatre District, any reference to a higher being is punished with public shaming, kids are arrested at gunpoint for playing with toy rifles, and police drones follow every suspected Peeping Tom. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Chiho's national animal is the Red Panda, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Chiho is ranked 231,495th in the world and 8,764th in The North Pacific for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 38.79 Whatever.
